St. John’s, NL (October 25, 2018) – Opposition Environment Critic Barry Petten questioned Premier Dwight Ball in the House of Assembly on Wednesday about his consent for a Liberal carbon tax that will hurt our province’s consumers without helping our environment.

“Four provinces are fighting the carbon tax, but our Premier refused to join them, opting instead to take his orders from the federal Liberals to crush our overtaxed people with yet another Liberal tax.” said Petten.

“Come January, the so-called temporary gas tax the Ball Liberals introduced in 2016 will morph into a permanent new carbon tax that will make things even more expensive, siphon even more money out of our overtaxed economy and do nothing to help our environment.”

“After this new carbon tax comes into effect, it will cost you more to drive your vehicle; more for gas; more for diesel; not less.  With 300 new Liberal taxes and fees since 2016 and our economy under pressure, this new Liberal tax will not help our cause, but hurt.”

“The Ball Liberals hid their intent from people instead of being transparent, and abandoned people instead of putting up a fight.  A PC Government will fight the carbon tax alongside likeminded governments, and set goals to reduce pollution while also reducing taxes that drain the good out of our economy.” said Petten.
